To round up this year’s Family Convention, we had a Family rally on Sunday 31st October, where the youth church, and international members of New Wine Church, joined us to participate in last Sunday’s service. It really was a time of powerful fellowship in the presence of God!

The Eternal Church Family

Did you know that the biological family that we are born into is only until our time on earth completes, but the church family is eternal?

When we get to heaven, our church family runs through time, and extends into eternity.

We are not only part of an eternal family, we are part of a royal eternal family. 1 Peter 2:9 says that we are a royal priesthood and citizens of the household of God. We are not just a family; we are a royal, eternal family, and we stand out!

The Resilient Church Family

Nothing can stop us as a church family. Just like a bouncy ball, the more the situations of life try to hit us to the ground, the higher we will go, because we are unstoppable!

Panel Discussion:

Question: What does the word ‘family’ mean to you?

Joshua: “A community where everyone cares for each other, and values each other.”

Caleb: “It’s like DNA; we’re inseparable. There is nothing that we can do to separate ourselves from each other.”

ChiChi: “People working as a unit, helping each other. People that are close to you, and people you care about.”

Congregational member: “Family is an environment in which you are nurtured and prepared for life. It is a place where you experience love and care, so that when you grow up, you will know how to give out what was deposited, because it has been imputed into you.”

Pastor David: “In church family, it is love that matters, not blood”.

Pastor Kola: “True oneness among a people.”


“…But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18). In 2021, we experience growth in the body- the church family, in Jesus’ name. AMEN!
